These Pins were handed out to VIPs, shareholders, employees and the press for the 90-year celebrations of the largest automotive design studio.

The pins symbolise Bertone’s logo evolution since its inception in 1912. Bertone’s logo can be found on many classic cars.

 

History

Coachbuilder Gruppo Bertone (commonly known as Bertone) was founded in 1912 by Giovanni Bertone. Bertone specialized in car styling, coachbuilding and manufacturing. He had styled cars for manufacturers such as Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, BMW, Citroën, Ferrari, FIAT, Iso, Lancia, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Opel, and Volvo. Its most famous creations are the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT and Montreal, Ferrari 250 GT SWB, Lancia Stratos, Opel Astra, Lamborghini Miura and Countach (Marcello Gandini), Citroen BX and XM.

 

After WWII Giovannis Son Giuseppe "Nuccio" Bertone took over the business and divided the company into two parts. The Carrozzeria for manufacturing and Stile Bertone for styling and design. After Nuccio’s death in 1997, the company was led by his wife Lilli Bertone. Unfortunately, Bertone went bankrupt in 2014 and had to shut down all business activities. Most of the 100 employees lost their job. The Bertone name was then acquired by an architect and retained by some of its former employees, who continued as a Milan-based small external design office. Today, Bertone Design focuses more on industrial design and architecture.
